  6. the genuine belts are here http://uk.eetgroup.com/i/422702501-Sony-Belt
  7. looks excellent i remember these units well with a very solid sound for that period. i notice that there are still more for sale ? under various sellers http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRAND-NEW-Vintage-Retro-Ghetto-Blaster-Boombox-80-s-Twin-Cassette-Radio/151971996257?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D838a9d3d028c4f9988f811b4b6605cee%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D191784190112
  8. i manged to get hold of a newish 940 uk edition unit off ebay so all is now good
  9. i have gone with this unit a sony uk badge from a dealer with one owner http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252142891686
  10. thanks for letting me know i'm going to bid on a few on ebay to see how the land lies if you should see anything that is good then please let me know as i may indeed mis something
  11. thanks freddy i may go for this i'm going to keep an open mind and yes that was the part that broke so that to could be another angle to look at. if a did go down this route tho i would get the complete lens i'm looking at this also but my gut feeling here this will reach top money http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SONY-MDS-JB940-QS-Minidisc-Deck-Remote-Excellent-Condition-99p-NR/121794562101?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D33840%26meid%3Dfb290ee7bc13428d876882b293b098ae%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D252136955041 also what is the difference between the uk model and the copper screws and the EU model ?
  12. is the JB 730 any good in case i'm unlucky in getting hold of a 940 i know the parts wont work in it but i'm after a good unit so may have to get hold of anything that's at least as good as the 940 i have my old 920 special edition and might even get hold of one of those if needed as it's been a superb unit but with the display fading to a level i can no longer see it it still works well none the less but at at least 15 years old it will pack up at some point i'm sure
  13. 5 belts will last at least 20 years i think the main thing is to make sure that any spare parts are kept in good storage. i'm hoping my next unit will be like new so that i'll have most of the spares for it from my unit i just broke a hard lesson learned and at the age of 60 i haven't done to bad in this hobby the only other error i have made was getting rid of jvc vhs machine on an easily rectified fault for a new super vhs machine thinking it would be better to buy new then pay out 70 pounds on a 5 year old player and i was wrong as little did i know that i had bought the best vhs machine ever built as most of the internal components were that of it's bigger brother from the super vhs model and made in japan and the new model i purchased had come about at the start of downturn in japan and was now made in Germany and with regret and i have the 2 top German players not as good as my standard vhs I think all of us have made errors at some point the idea is if you can learn from mistakes then you can then pass your knowledge onto others and with confidence
  14. i have a very rare cd recorder from marantz that skips for the first 5 minutes of playing but woks perfectly after that so i'm leaving alone just to be on the safe side http://www.hifiengine.com/files/images/MARANTZ DR6000 CD RECORDER PLAYER.jpg
